Hello Teresa, are these the stock wheels? What part of the wheels are showing signs of rubbing?
Ok. If the tire/wheel is actually rubbing on something then it is more than likely a bad suspension part like a ball joint or a bad hub bearing. These will allow the tire to shift and rub like this.
Lol! I just saw the 3 reply's from me. Every time I would type up my reply, I would hit enter instead of reply and it didn't show up, so I had to retype it 3 times. The service guys looked at it today and said it's from the guys who replaced my tires not balancing them correctly. Could that really be the case?
It is possible if they put the wrong wheel weights on and they were rubbing on the suspension.
